*Description*: M2-9 is a striking example of a "butterfly" or a bipolar planetary nebula. Another more revealing name might be the "Twin Jet Nebula." If the nebula is sliced across the star, each side of it appears much like a pair of exhausts from jet engines. Indeed, because of the nebula's shape and the measured velocity of the gas, in excess of 200 miles per second, astronomers believe that the description as a super-super-sonic jet exhaust is quite apt...

*Description*:> Artist's Concept This artist's concept of star formation in the early universe shows a field of dazzling proto-galaxies brightening as white-hot knots of stars are born within them. According to recent results from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, the earliest stars may have formed in a torrential firestorm just a few hundred million years after the big bang.

*Description*:> Artist's Concept This animation reveals the topography and beauty of the Orion Nebula like never before. Based on data obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope, all of the gas clouds, stars and proplyds are positioned as accurately as possible. The animation ends with a close-up examination of the proplyd HST-10, where astronomers see dust grains clumping in the early formation of rocky planets, but whose gaseous envelope is also being burned away by the Trapezium stars in the nebu...

*Description*:> Dr. Robert A.E. Fosbury, of the European Space Agency's Space Telescope-European Coordinating Facility in Germany, tells how the Lynx arc discovery began. "One Friday afternoon a colleague walked in waving a sheet of paper vigorously. The plot showed a spectrum of a mysterious arc in the Lynx cluster. It had already been passed around to the members of the cluster collaboration, but nobody was able to recognize the type of object." Technical facts about this news release: About t...
